An article in the online newspaper, Sott.net, has an interesting article about why eating a low fat diet will NOT decrease your risk of developing heart disease. In fact, low fat diets are the cause of cardiovascular disease!

Dr. Dwight Lundell, a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, busts the myth that heart disease is caused by high blood cholesterol. He goes on to explain that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease and how to prevent it.

Lundell explains why the mainstream American diet and obesity causes inflammation which leads to developing “heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and finally, Alzheimer’s disease”. The two main culprits are:
